Is It Time To Walk Away

My husband and I have been married 5 years in the last 5 years he has only worked maybe a grand total of 2 years. Over the past few years the arguements have gotten increasingly worse the first time he shoved me into a chair during an arguement, that escalated into him bending my thumb back to almost touching my wrist, the most recent time I smacked him and he slapped me across the face and knocked me to the floor. He doesn't work now, barely cares for the 3 children we have, and only cleans the house when I complain enough about it or get up and do it myself. I think I love my husband but find myself thinking I'm not in love with him anymore. Any advise as to what I should do would be greatly appreciated.

When i comment to your question in the Q/A and said there are few exceptiins to honoring the vows of a marriage...this right here is a perfect example of a reason NOT to honor them...ABUSE of any kind is not will only escalate...NO man or woman is worth matter how much you or someone loves them!

The best course of action in my opinion is pack up and leave or force him to leave...

I have never hit a woman and never will...even though i have been slapped a few times...

There is still NO EXCUSE for it...EVER!!!!

The physical abuse is only going to escalate, without seeing a counselor, if he refuses then separate, if you can. Sounds like he isn't supporting the children anyway, so if nothing changes, LEAVE!
